Hi everyone, my name is Zoro
I am a sweet boy who needs a calm home where I can spend my time exploring as I am very curious. I am quite independent, however I do love pats, chin rubs and generally following people around. I have a fun side and love to play, particularly kick toys and chasing wands. I would be best suited to a home with no young children as my excitable nature can sometimes be a little too much for small kids.
I am full of energy at times and love to run and jump – you will be surprised how fast I am and how high I can jump. My foster mum says I was a cheetah in a previous life.
While I love to sit and watch the world go by outside, I do like your company and will follow you from room to room to see what you are up to.
I tend to be a bit of a social eater but I do love my tucker especially crunchy biscuits.
I love to groom and keep my beautiful coat in tip top condition and I enjoy being brushed.
My foster mum says I am a little mischievous at times as I like to pounce at her calf when I want her attention. I also love water and sometimes pinch an ice cube from her glass to play with on the floor.
I love a bit of a chat and will call to you when I want to know where you are.
I have a condition called Feline Immunodeficiency virus (Also known as FIV) The staff can fill you in or else you can research this (it’s not scary, I promise!)
Take me home and I will be a loyal companion.
If you would like to meet me, please fill in an expression of interest form.
Adopting an animal
Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.
Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.
- Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
- Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
- Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
- Do I have time for obedience training?
- If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
- Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
- Does the whole family want a pet?
- Will the pet be allowed inside?
- Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
- Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.
Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:
- Weekly animal food bills and necessities
- Yearly council registration
- Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
- Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
- Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
- Ongoing grooming
- Boarding fees for human holidays
- Enrichment like training, toys etc
